NOTE: I received a letter from the witness on 07/16/00. I sent her a letter asking if she would like to file an offfical report with MUFON. Here is details from her account. I am a forty-five year old female who has had a life-long interest in UFO's since the age of five. On December 31, 1997 around 5:45 p.m. I was walking my dog. On one side of the street there were lots of pine trees, but I could see through their tops. I live near the airport so I know there is constant air traffic, so I glanced up twice at an aircraft before finally taking a longer look. The craft was like a triangle shape but each of the three sides were a different length, and the bottom of the craft was covered with blue-white lights, so it must be a UFO. I was looking at it through the trees but couldn't tell how big it was. I started running towards a clearing to get a better look and it was like it read my mind. As I started running all the lights on the craft went out and it was no longer in view. Everything around was still and quiet.
